Project Details

The first micro-credit was awarded to support mobile chicken roosts that can provide a healthful environment for the production of nutritious eggs, which could be sold at the local market. Other Chaco development projects include a fish farm in Puerto Casado and an organic community farm; both projects provide livelihood and nutritious food sources to the local town.
